Description Josh Bressers 2005-08-16 10:07:54 EDT
Adobe alerted us to a buffer overflow in acroread

Details: The identified vulnerability is a buffer overflow within a core
application plug-in which is part of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.  If
a malicious file were opened it could trigger a buffer overflow as the
file is being loaded into Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.  A buffer
overflow can cause the application to crash and increase the risk of
malicious code execution.
